Hi i have a 14 that is leaking hydro oil out the axles. The tractor itself is in great shape and i want to restore. Can i still get gaskets and seals for the hydro?

You mention gaskets....are you speaking of the hydro pump/motor gaskets?  Or are you just needing seals for the axles themselves?  Not sure if Massey still offers the seals, but you could source them from any bearing/seal supply company.   

 I split this post into it's own so as to get more views.

Massey still sells the axle seal. The part number for the seal is 842569M1. I replaced both sides and ended up ruining one seal so instead of ordering another Massey seal online I went to Napa and got one there. (Massey Ferguson shut down my local dealer about four years ago and now the closest dealer is over an hour away,It was a small family operation too.) The Napa part number is 11372. I cannot remember the price for either one. The only thing is the side with the Napa seal still leaks a little. The axle shaft didn't seem to have a groove worn in it, so I'm not sure if the Napa seal isn't spot on or maybe I did something to the seal again.

Thanks. I guess i assumed i would have to disassemble the rearend to replace the seals requiring the gaskets. Maybe i should started by asking what kind of job is it to replace the seals. Thanks for all your help.

You know, it's been so many years since being into a Peerless 2500 series that I forget if the true seals are at the axle tube ends, or behind the tubes next to the trans housing like the 2600 series that I replaced seals in last year.  Let me holler at a friend who's been into his lately & get back with you.  Unless someone comes along before then.

The seal will be outboard at the axle end.

Here is a link to the manual I just uploaded.

Thanks ducky, I thought they were at the end on the 2500 series, but couldn't remember.  I've only had to put one seal in all my tractors with this differential, and that was years & years ago.  MUCH easier than the 2600 series!

Be warned....these hubs can be beasts to pull off.  You will need a beefy puller to get them off.  Heating the hub, then applying wax that will be pulled in may go a long way to help.

Or PB Blaster.  I thought we agreed to let him discover this on his own?
